Continuing on with the travelling through time theme that has been prevalent a lot in Series 2, this time we have four crooks who have pulled off a train heist of gold that was being shipped. However, their escape route is different from most criminals. Their scientist leader has designed four suspended animation chambers for them all to hide out in until they can be sure they won’t be caught, and that the gold will no longer be too hot to sell. And so they lay in wait, for 100 years.
On their awakening, they discover one of their number is dead from having his chamber crushed during their sleep, and another is soon killed by the greediest member. What progresses from this point is a trudge along the highway to survival, and hopefully riches. But will the two remaining members make it?
The idea is sound and workable, but by the end of the episode, and with the resulting twist, it becomes somewhat unsatisfying. For all, no doubt.
Rating: The man with the golden touch. 3/5.
